    Really timely post for me. Those words hit last week and I’ve been feeling like a fraud ever since.

      Rebecca,
      Thank you so much for sharing! It’s good to know we aren’t alone and that the words others speak to us don’t determine our value. Keep working – the world needs it!

  2. I think we have to listen to constructive criticism, but if someone attacks you, and not the work, then they are the one with the problem.Good for you for (re-)learning to be secure in yourself. Good for your husband, too, for reminding you of your worth, and all that you have accomplished.

      I agree, J.H.! There’s definitely a place for constructive criticism (which I always welcome!), but there’s a difference between that and personal attacks. Having people who can speak truth into you and your business, people who actually KNOW you, is everything.

  3. Wow Kaitlin! Such a powerful and on time post for me! You have NO idea how real your words are to me. The words hit me a few months ago and to be honest, I’ve been feeling so lost lately. Thank you so much for sharing!!

      So glad this helped. It’s hard to be vulnerable, but we all go through times where we feel like this!

  5. Well written! Our Worth is not found in others but in One alone! Resting in that Truth…

  6. OH my goodness, thank you. I’ve been in this business for over 12 years, and have been struggling so much the past few. I got an awful, unhappy client email just minutes before I got yours. THANK YOU.

      It’s definitely a constant battle/struggle. Remind yourself of truth – and when you can’t, surround yourself with people who can!

  8. Thank you so much for sharing your heart! This has happened to me too and it was the worst. It is so good to know I’m not alone in the struggle. Your are completely right it is about ignoring the lies and standing on the truth I keep reminding myself that you are called to this and that my worth comes from Him. I wish you all the best as you expand your business!

  9. I ADORE this! So much truth and your experience and heart and so similar to mine! I recently began a writing blog and have been so terrified to be truly myself on my blog because I’m worried what people will think. It’s making me frozen in place, too scared to move forward. Love your honest words and encouragement!
